    Is there a reason for ANZ specifically charging service fees (i.e. $19.95 for a quarter to make at least one trade) unlike many other share investing accounts offered by other companies.

    Hi ,

    When I’m Buying Australian Stock it gives me this response Rejected. Value of order is below a marketable parcel – currently $600 (excl. brokerage & fees).

    I have placed 600$ worth or less than that at it keeps giving me that response

    What does that mean?

      Hi Rina,

      You may need to consider the brokerage and fees in placing your order.

      This means apart from the minimum value, you might have to add an amount that would be allocated for said fees.

      It’s best to confirm this with their Customer Support should it not work.

      I hope this helps.

    My daughter received a gift of cash (under $5k) for her 18th birthday and wished to invest in shares. We went through a broker and purchased 2 share investments in January. She was charged brokerage of $121 minimum brokerage per investment ie $$242. She has today received a further bill for an annual account keeping fee of $150 + GST = $165. I believe that the equivalent ANZ brokerage fees would have been $19.95 each if those original investments were made through ANZ. Does ANZ charge an annual account keeping fee for brokerage accounts?
